I usually stay at the Southern Sun just opposite the Radisson Blu when I'm in Maputo for business, but they are currently under renovation.
Didn't regret my choice, the driver picking me up from the airport was very friendly and courteous, as was the reception staff upon arrival in the hotel.
I had initially wanted to book the -cheaper- standard room for which we have a corporate rate but as these were all full, I had to book the seaview room which was quite a bit more expensive than what we usually pay for a seaview room in the Southern Sun.
The receptionist changed my initial room number to a new one (same room type though), and I guess the sudden change explained why there were no amenities and no toilet paper in the room.
It took a bit of a hassle to get this sorted, but five calls and one trip to reception later it eventually worked out.
The room was otherwise very nice and the wifi was working flawlessly.
The 24 hour gym is really great, good equipment, just bring your own towel as I noticed that if you work-out in the evening, there are none.
Both the ground floor coffee-bar/lunch restaurant as well as the main restaurant were very good, and the breakfast is fantastic.
Definitely a place I will come back to on my next trip to Maputo!
